Six for Sunday: Books I want to be written
I think that this might be the toughest prompt yet!
I have heard it said that, if you want to read a book that hasn’t yet been written, then you should write it yourself. If only I had the skills!
The first few I thought of were books in series that I love and that I know the author is working on – I just can’t wait to get my hands on them. The next few are books I wish existed…
Kitsune (Mirrorworld Series #4) By Cornelia Funke
I adore this series so much! The first three books are incredible and I know that the author is working on Book 4 at the moment, centred around my favourite character, Celeste (the fox shapeshifter). I need this book already!
Doors of Stone (The Kingkiller Chronicles #3)
I have actually only read the first book in this trilogy, The Name of the Wind because I know that the third book won’t be out for ages so I have been saving the second book to read when the release date for the third book gets a little closer…this needs to happen soon!
More books in the Harry Potter series
I’m not particularly interested in reading about the children of those in the original books (I am weird like this, but I always lose interest in a series when it starts telling the story of the next generation). However, I would love to read more about Hogwarts during the Marauders Era or find out more of the life story of characters like Professor McGonagall. Recently, I saw on the news that J.K. Rowling will be writing three e-books expanding her world – hope they’re good because some of the retrospective changes have puzzled me.
A sequel to Seaward by Susan Cooper
I loved this book growing up and would list it as one of the ‘formative’ texts in shaping me as a reader and writer. It is perfectly self-contained, but I always wondered what would have happened next. What would have happened for Cally and West back in the ‘real’ world, with all of their experiences and growth? Surely, they would be very different people than they were before.
A re-imagining of Irish legends
I grew up familiar with lots of Irish legends and folklore. I would love to see some of these stories retold and re-imagined for a modern audience.
Books with a wider range of mythological creatures
I love dragons, don’t get me wrong, but I would love to see a wider range of creatures in stories – that is one reason why I was so pleased to see phoenixes in Crown of Feathers. Give me griffins, selkies, hellhounds and more.
